Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


As previously disclosed, on April 21, 2023, Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings, Inc. (“Liberty TripAdvisor”) received written notice (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying Liberty TripAdvisor that, because the closing bid price for Liberty TripAdvisor’s Series A common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“LTRPA”), had fallen below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days, Liberty TripAdvisor no longer complied with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing of LTRPA on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). The Notice indicated that, if Liberty TripAdvisor does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement with respect to LTRPA by October 18, 2023, trading of LTRPA would be suspended.


On October 19, 2023, Liberty TripAdvisor received written notice from Nasdaq notifying Liberty TripAdvisor that trading of LTRPA and Liberty TripAdvisor’s Series B common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“LTRPB”), will be suspended at the open of business on October 30, 2023 due to LTRPA’s failure to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by October 18, 2023 and LTRPB’s failure to satisfy the continued listing requirements under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5460(b) necessary to maintain a separate “primary equity security” listing independent of LTRPA, specifically the requirements set forth under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b). Following such suspension, Nasdaq is expected to file a Form 25 Notification of Delisting with the Securities Exchange Commission with respect to LTRPA and LTRPB when all internal procedural periods have run.


The OTC Markets Group, Inc. (“OTC”) has approved the quotation of LTRPA and LTRPB on the OTCQB Venture Market (“OTCQB”) and LTRPA and LTRPB are expected to be quoted on OTCQB immediately following their suspension of trading on Nasdaq on October 30, 2023. The ticker symbols and CUSIPs for LTRPA and LTRPB are not expected to change in connection with their suspension and delisting from Nasdaq and commencement of quotation on the OTCQB.


Liberty TripAdvisor will continue to remain a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the transition to OTCQB is not expected to affect Liberty TripAdvisor’s business operations.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


On October 19, 2023, Liberty TripAdvisor issued a press release relating to its intention to have LTRPA and LTRPB traded on OTCQB following their suspension of trading on Nasdaq.


This Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 are being furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission under Item 7.01 of Form 8-K in satisfaction of the public disclosure requirements of Regulation FD and shall not be deemed “filed” for any purpose.
